Christian Burmester from MFT Mikrofiltertechnik:”Since more and more biodiesel has been added to biodiesel in Croatia after its accession to the EU, people have realized that there is a need for action. We receive numerous orders from customers whose ships are based in Croatia‟. The trend here is not really surprising: More and more skippers are reporting diesel problems, partly because high-quality additives are hardly available.
Therefore, if you want to be on the safe side, you should seek advice in advance as to whether a tank inspection or tank cleaning is necessary or possible.
<a title=”Vorteile einer SeaHelp Mitgliedschaft” href=”https://www.sea-help.eu/seahelp-mitgliedschaft-leistungen/”>SeaHelp members</a> can book a tank inspection at the SeaHelp special price of 90 euros less 10% and also a tank cleaning via the SeaHelp headquarters in Ebensee or directly by e-mail. Tank cleaning is charged according to the ship and the work involved, minus the ten percent SeaHelp benefit discount for members. But in this case you usually save even more: Since the cleaning professionals are already on site, the necessary travel costs are reduced considerably.
SeaHelp has been emphasising the importance of appropriate ”tank hygiene‟ for years. A SeaHelp inspection of the diesel tanks at Marina Olive Island revealed bacteria in the tanks of approximately 80% of the yachts inspected. For safety reasons, many of the tanks had to be cleaned to avoid the risk of fuel-related engine failures. The result of this first large-scale investigation ultimately led to many owners paying more attention to the fuel in their tanks.
